Narrator: 1 day, Rosie was at the junction when Murdoch trundled in with some Freight Cars.

Rosie: "Phew!"

Narrator: remarked Rosie.

Rosie: "What a funny smell.

Rosie: "Can you smell a smell?"

Bill: "I can't smell a smell."

Narrator: said Bill.

Rosie: "A funny musty sort of smell."

Narrator: said Rosie.

Murdoch: "No 1 noticed it 'til' you did."

Narrator: grunted Murdoch.

Murdoch: "It must be yours."

Narrator: Not long ago he had fallen in a dirty ditch. Rosie enjoyed teasing him about it.

Rosie: "Bill, Ben, do you know what I think it is? it's ditchwater."

Narrator: Before Murdoch could anwser, Rosie trundled away.

Narrator: Bill and Ben could hardly believe their eyes.

Bill + Ben: "She's dreadfully, I feel quite ashamed. I feel quite ashamed, she's dreadfully rude."

Narrator: And to Rosie, they said,"

Bill + Ben: "You mustn't be rude, you make us ashamed."

Narrator: But Rosie didn't care a bit.

Rosie: "That was funny." "That was funny."

Narrator: She chuckled. She felt very pleased with herself.

Bill and Ben were deeply shock. They had great respect for Murdoch the Big Engine.

Narrator: Rosie left the twins at the station, and went off to a mine for some cars.

Narrator: Long ago, miners digging for lead had made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up cars, but not the weight of engines. A large notice warns them not to enter the area.

Narrator: Danger! Engines must not pass this board.

Rosie: "Silly old board."

Narrator: thought Rosie.

Narrator: She had often tried to pass it, but had never succeeded, but this morning, she made a plan.

Narrator: The fireman went to throw the switch.

Rosie: "Now for my plan."

Narrator: thought Rosie.

Narrator: Bumping the freight cars fiercely, she jerked her driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding.

Rosie's Driver: "Come back!"

Narrator: yelled her driver.

Rosie: "Fire and smoke!"

Narrator: said Rosie.

Rosie: "I'm sunk!"

Narrator: And she was."

Rosie: "Oh dear."

Narrator: she said.

Rosie: "I am a silly engine."

Lady Hatt: "And a very naughty 1 too, I saw you!"

Narrator: said Lady Hatt."

Rosie: "Please get me out, I won't do it again!"

Lady Hatt: "I'm not sure. We can't left you out with the crane. The ground's not firm enough......hmmm.....let me see........I wonder if Murdoch could pull you out."

Rosie: "Yes, ma'am."

Narrator: said Rosie, but she didn't wanna meet Murdoch just yet.

Murdoch: "Down a mine, is she? hee, hee, hee!"

Narrator: laughed Murdoch.

Murdoch: "What a joke!"

Murdoch: "Poop, poop, little Rosie, we'll have you out in a couple of puffs!"

Narrator: strong cables were fastened between the 2 engines.

Lady Hatt: "Are you ready? heave!"

Narrator: It was a lot harder then they all throught, but at last, Rosie was free."

Rosie: "I'm sorry I was cheeky."

Narrator: said Rosie.

Murdoch: "That's alright,'ve made me laugh."

Narrator: said Rosie.

Murdoch: "I'm disgrace."

Rosie: "So am I."

Narrator: said Rosie.

Murdoch: "Why so you are, Rosie, shall we form an alliance? you help me, and I'll help you."

Rosie: "Right you are!"

Narrator: agreed Rosie.

Murdoch: "Good, that's settled."

Narrator: grumbled Murdoch.

Narrator: And buffer to buffer, the allies puffed home.
